North Jersey Pride Festival

Date: Sunday, June 9
Time: 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm (EDT)
Memorial Park in Maplewood, NJ

The North Jersey Pride Festival is one of the largest family-friendly LGBTQ Pride celebrations in the tristate—and we are planning our biggest celebration yet! 

Admission is free to this all-day community celebration, thanks to the generosity of our corporate sponsors. (Learn all about sponsorship!)

Live stage. Enjoy an incredible show featuring local and national talent (and all material is family-friendly!) 

Vendor court. More than 100 merchant vendors selling jewelry, art, crafts, clothing, and of course, plenty of rainbow gear! You’ll also be able to learn more about the incredible nonprofits that advocate on behalf of the LGBTQ community. Apply to be a vendor!

Large food court. Sample an eclectic buffet of delicious cuisine from local culinary artisans, and don’t forget dessert—baked goods, frozen treats and lemonade for all! Apply to join the food court!

Rainbow Kids Zone. One more thing that makes North Jersey Pride special is our expansive and fun-for-all-ages kids area with fun inflatables for toddlers, challenging obstacle courses for older kids and giant slides for everyone! (Bracelets for inflatables are just $10 per child for all-day fun with a max of $20 per family.) Your kids will love our interactive Kids Stage featuring a new and exciting show every hour on the hour. The goal? Your kids will be too busy to bother you for hours! 

Come with a blanket or some beach chairs, spread out on the lawn, and enjoy a day of fun, family and celebration!

Come find the Jewish Federation table at the North Jersey Pride Festival! New this year, Federation will be distributing kits to celebrate Pride Shabbat. For more information, contact Sharon Zucker: [email protected]
